  1. The Spineframe Brain Trust. I wonder if they ever made it back?
  2. I'm not sure that dealer's are involved in the new bike yet. I talked to the local shop last week and he didn't even know there was a new Guzzi coming out. He was happy to hear it from me.
  3. I think if you search here, you'll find the black one is the rarest of all the red frames. Hard to say why but the red frames are among the best looking bikes of a family of spine frame best looking bikes.
  4. sorry you got the slow black one. But you'll be fine
  5. Personally, I like the stock look. Just the worn stainless. But if your pipes are burning out, go with chrome or dull chrome (2059).
  6. I would guess that the bike should handle great. After all, why invest in completely new bike, engine, frame, electronics, adaptive aero, new components, ohlins-E but skimp on the rear/drive suspension? They would never do that
  7. My thinking too. Might not be convenient for owners 300 miles from the dealer. I know the Beemer RT requires the cams to come out for adjustment and the interval is 12k miles. And it's not just skill for DIY-er, also need the shim kit. I know that there is a national rental service available for the Ducati valve adjustment kit (not factory), with tools and consumables, and even video instructions. I think the rental period is like 3-4weeks(?), the shipping, rental and consumable costs are deducted from the deposit.
  8. Any guess about valve adjustment?
  9. Nice stuff but the V11 Sport/LeMans is still the best looking Guzzis ever produced. (And the V11 was ahead of the return of the round headlight styling before anyone else. ) This is a nice looking bike but not as nice as ours. I wonder how it sounds?
  10. My little 937cc Ducati makes 113HP. Funny how a water pump has given bikes more horsepower than all those turbos from the early '80s.
  11. I'll eat crow, it's pretty nice, not over the moon but pretty nice. If they'd come out with it 5 years ago, I might not have purchased my Ducati. I suppose I'm glad they didn't because I love my Duc. I'd still like to ride this one.
  12. Docc is a great host. I hope to be back someday. Stay safe y'all.
  13. I rode the first one at the introduction, maybe 10 years ago? Straight up riding position and did not see any parts of the bike. Just the road ahead. That was a strange feeling. Same as Kane.
